Should You Move Out of Your Home During Roof Replacement?

Roof replacement is a disruptive project. It’s noisy, messy and it may temporarily leave certain parts of your home exposed to the elements. For these reasons, some homeowners choose to move out while the work is underway. But is this really necessary? Winfield Builders, your local roofing and gutters specialists, sheds light on the matter.

Short Answer: You Don’t Have To

You have the option to remain in your home while the roofers replace your roof, but it will require preparation. Informing the other members of your family of this temporary change is likewise important so they know what to expect.

Preparing Your Property Before Roof Replacement

Plan carefully and communicate frequently with your roofers before the job begins. Before the first day of the roofing job, make sure that the pros have ample space for all of their equipment. Move any furniture around the perimeter of your home so they can gain access to your roof with ease. Place your valuables as far from the work zone as possible, including your car, to prevent damage.

Preparing Your Family for Roof Replacement

Everyone in the family needs to know what to expect. Before the project starts, make sure to talk to your family, especially your children. Let them know what is happening and that they should steer clear of potentially dangerous areas.
